DD is just getting over a cold, and at first that is what I attributed to her sudden crankiness. But the cold is getting better and she isn't. She will be 7 months old this weekend and is not yet crawling. I am wondering if maybe she feels frustrated by her inability to get anywhere on her own or if it's something else.
I need your advice Mamas!:

She could still be crabby from the cold or she could be teething. Both of my kids got really cranky for about a week before there were any other signs of teething. It was torture trying to figure out what was wrong. I finally gave some tylenol or advil just to see if it was teeth and they settled right down. They their gums got really swollen a few days later.

I'd really really guess teething! My dd would always get sick at the beginning of teething -- not sure if it had to do with extra saliva (she often got barfy) or opportunistic stuff leaping aboard while her defenses were down.

But really sounds like teething. Could be a while yet before it becomes apparent.
